Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Sony WF-XB700

(1/1)

Man I wanted these to be great, but for the price they are missing way too much, one main features I thought they would have is App support and Hot swapping earbuds, sadly they do not, which is a bomber considering the price, I'm sorry but the Galaxy buds plus is just a better deal all around... For these to be XBASS earbuds I thought they would have App support, they could at least tell you in the description that they don't have it

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Sony WF-XB700

(1/6)

On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the earphones deliver powerful low-frequency response. As you might expect, it is quite exaggerated, and while it doesn’t overtake the balance of the mix completely, this is a bass-forward, seriously deep sound.

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Headphone are comfortable and light. Got used to them in the ear right away. You get great value for what you pay.

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Sony WF-XB700

(1/2)

These earphones are good. They sound much better than my AirPods and they’re more comfortable too. They look a little bulky at first but once you have them in they actually aren’t that bad, they also stay in my ear perfectly fine they don’t feel like they are about to fall out when I move my head. UPDATE: I’ve only had these for 2 months and the right side headphone will just randomly go silent at times and anywhere from 10 seconds to 1 minute

Warranty

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

Customer service is not amazing. Warranty is nothing special. Oh, and the stock cable is a cable. It's not great

Sony WF-XB700

(1/1)

Update: Received brand new replacement and, so far, it works great. Just remember the one-year warranty. Sony made it easy to get a replacement.

Durability

Sony WF-XB700

(1/1)

In fact, the larger footprint for the outer earpieces might actually be part of what helps them stay in place. Internally, 12mm Neodymium drivers deliver a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz.
